Default Re: Super-hardy bananas in Israel?

Greetings to all

Dotan, the news in the article concerning the climatic conditions of certain kibbutzim are true. In fact after time I continued my reasearch writing to the person featured in the article, Mr. Rodger Bodlet, a very kind person indeed . He said that the referred kibbutzim are: Matzuva, near the Lebanon Border, and near to it Rosh ha Nikra. For sure one could not say these are cold places, we are still in Israel! I am not comparing it in places in North America or so... but for sure these are places can have some snow and occasional frosts, as happened also in 2008.

Roger said: "I was informed by the kibbutznicks that their plantations are on the snowline of the Lebanon Mountains. Other banana plantation owners in the Lower Galilee region had said that it was too cold at Kibbutz Matsuba to grow bananas and laughed at the idea, but the kibbutz now produces more banana tonnage that any other plantation in Israel".

Concerning the name Musa, also in another Semitic language, Ethiopic and modern derivatives, the name is Muz.

Have a nice day you all!
